These cops will be implementing this alongside the rules that requires drone users to have it registered and taking ‘Safety Awareness’ Test.
The Government in UK is taking a firm stand regarding drone regulations. Earlier this year, the new rules were put in place that require drones weighing over 250 grams to be registered and the owners take a ‘safety awareness’ test that would prove that the owners/users understood the regulations. The British Police will have the power to not just ground the drones that they think are being used to commit an offense but also seize these drones once the UK Government finished drafting a new bill for that and once it passed the legislation committee. It will be called simply as the Drone Bill, and this bill might even ban the use of drones flying over feet near airports.
